So, we finally ran out of cake balls and needed a new dessert. My husband said he would be happy with cookies, and since I know he also loves brownies, I decided to try to make blondies (or blonde brownies--sort of a cross between a brownie and a cookie). See below:
I found a recipe here. I took the recommendation of some of the posters on this recipe and doubled the recipe, so if you want a 9x9 sized pan worth of blondies, use the ingredient amounts below. If you'd prefer a 9x13 sized pan, double the ingredient amounts below:
The procedure for making this recipe is, not surprisingly, very similar to making chocolate chip cookies. So, first, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and sift your dry ingredients (minus the brown sugar) together into a medium bowl.
Next, melt your butter and pour into a large bowl. Add brown sugar to this bowl and mix well to combine with the butter. Make sure to get all the brown sugar lumps well integrated. Add the egg and vanilla to the brown sugar mixture.
Add the flour mixture a little at a time to the brown sugar mixture, mixing well to prevent the formation of lumps. Finally, mix in the chocolate chips.
Grease a baking dish or spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking (9x9 for the recipe as listed; 9x13 for a double batch). Pour blondie batter into the baking dish, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. When the blondies begin to set and turn a golden color, they are done! Cut into 24 slices, and enjoy the flaky, buttery blondies!
